The 55mm F 3.5 Micro Nikkor was one of the finest lenses that Nikon made. I used it to do all sort of archival work and for pleasure shots and it earned me a lot of money. I finally replaced it with the 60mm F 2.8 auto focus Micro Nikkor but it didn't have the magic of the old one. These photos were all shot on Kodachrome II with a speed of only 25. The lens was mounted on a Nikon Ftn.

Yes indeed. There used to be a garden that was the replica of the famous pebbles garden in Kyoto. I visited both and was astounded at their similarity. Each day the pebbles were arranged differently and one could meditate while looking at them. Naturally, in the name of progress, it was demolished in the eighties along with most of the original green houses to build new ones that are not only ugly but already look dated. What can I say. At least we have photos to remember the way things were. These are Kodachromes that I scanned at high resolution.
